So back to my request here - 'seeing some of your empty hands application work and also to understand if this was passed on to you via a Sensei of a certain Ryu or something developed yourself from your experience'

I would be keen to understand or see these things a little better.

I posted on this yesterday, but missed an application I teach my students from Naihanchi that I posted on my videoblog in November. It's the first clip in the post. (The remaining clips are discussions of Naihanchi Shodan for use with a spear.)
